I need some help. I have an OpenVPN running on my Merlin Router (self-created AWS profile), but due to my network setup, it is not the primary router. Everything works fine when I am connected to ONLY my OpenVPN, but when I connect to another VPN on my computer, it blocks all my network traffic. The VPN connects, but the internet is dead. I was able to do this where I used to live, but when I moved, now I cannot connect to the VPN.

I have basic networking experience, and I know it had to do with double routing and most likely NAT issues, but I am not sure where to start. Any help would be appreciated.

Your post is confusing. You have multiple "VPNs" but it is not clear which are clients and which are servers. The Wireguard reference is also unclear.
